Is there going to be a successor to the I7 3960X?

Thread Starter 
Anyone have any info on the Ivy Bridge range... Specifically, is there a I7 3960X upgrade in the bunch?

IB-E is coming later this year. Probably in Q3/Q4.

From conversations I have had with a few Intel guys, it seems the concensus is that all their energy and innovation is going into faster, lower power, higher graphics capable chips for the mobile market. It seems the day of the overclocked PC may be coming to the same fate as the muscle car and IBM 370 architecture mainframe.

Could this be why they are focusing on IGP?
